I woke up today and began flicking around on TED when I stumbled upon this talk be Sir Ken Robinson, on how schools are killing our creativity.
I strongly believe that the evolution of our race will be driven by people who are able to let themselves and have the freedom to be creative and come up with new thoughts and original ideas. People like you, our PP community.

“Why don’t we get the best out of people? Sir Ken Robinson argues that it’s because we’ve been educated to become good workers, rather than creative thinkers. Students with restless minds and bodies — far from being cultivated for their energy and curiosity — are ignored or even stigmatized, with terrible consequences. “We are educating people out of their creativity,” Robinson says. It’s a message with deep resonance. Robinson’s TEDTalk has been distributed widely around the Web since its release in June 2006. The most popular words framing blog posts on his talk? “Everyone should watch this.”
